I first learned about Bird scooters while walking on Atlanta BeltLine's Eastside Trail. It was like a light switch had been turned on and people were riding electric scooters all over the place. Most were mindful of pedestrians and I still feel more comfortable with them around than speedy bikers. Later I learned Bird will pay you to pick up scooters and I signed up. I've been picking up two or three a week on our nightly walks when I come across them. The scooters usually have a little juice left in them and it's a fun way to get paid to ride them.
